I have been told that I have iron-deficiency anemia and am taking 325 mg ferrous sulfate twice a day. Like usual, the dr told me that it may cause constipation. Since starting the supplements, I have not been constipated at all - rather, I've had diarrhea more days than not. Does this indicate anything? Specifically, I want to know if this indicates any problem with me absorbing the iron. I'd hate to go back for my recheck in 6 more weeks only to find out that I haven't improved at all because of poor absorption, especially if the diarrhea is an indication of a problem.

I haven't contacted the dr about it because I did find one website that said that the supplements can cause diarrhea due just to stomach irritation, but I thought I'd check here.

Thanks in advance.
